My son went for a job interview and they did a urine test on him.They said that he tested positive for thc and opiates.We know why he tested positive for opiates(he had a migraine headache and was carried to the er.He got an injection of morphene and then one of phenergan).He is so upset cause he does not use drugs of any kind.What would cause this test to be positive?Any help with this would be greatly appreciated.Thank you!!
Loving parent, as a health care provider, I've taken many drug test at work. most of them turn out fine, but I did have one saying that I had Darvocet in my system, and I never took any. These test are not accurate, but unfortunately, they can cause problems for employee's. I would get a signed statement from the ER Doc stating why he got the Morphine. I have had to deal with that the entire 25 years of my nursing career. I too get migraines, excruciating ones, so I certainly understand the trip to the ER. but be careful, even though giving narcotics to relieve pain of migraines is justified, too many trips there, say, one a month, and they will flag his chart as a frequent flyer. Not that he goes that often, I'm just giving you a little advice. if he has a doctors statement, he should be fine at work. but as for the THC, ask him if he smokes pot. if not, then my next suggestion would be to have them do a blood draw for a drug test. They are more accurate, or you could take him and get it done yourself. if it comes back neg. That should be all the proof he needs. it's really unfortunate that urine test are being used when they are so faulty. Good luck with this. NIK
